Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. If your child has cough, cold, fever, is dizzy and feels faint it is probably due to a viral infection. Flu is the common term used for these kinds of illnesses. I also believe that you should not worry too much about it and give him adequate rest, proper nutrition and hydrate him enough so that it will help with his overall general condition.

I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
